FAQ About the March Break Reimbursement Fund


Need Support For Your Child with ASD* During March Break?

The 2022 March Break Reimbursement Fund is available to Ontario families of children or youth with ASD who retain the services of a one-to-one support worker OR who have paid for their child to attend a 2022 March Break camp or program, but not both.

Maximum reimbursements of $350 per child or youth (up to 18th birthday) will be made to subsidize services purchased between March 14-18, 2022.

A minimum of 1,007 families, from across Ontario, are expected to receive reimbursements. Reimbursements will be provided based on a random selection made from all eligible applicants who apply between December 20, 2021 and January 24, 2022.

Process

  1. Application: We will accept completed and signed applications from December 20, 2021 to January 24, 2022. Your application must include evidence of a clear ASD diagnosis from a professional who is qualified to make the diagnosis (see website for details).
  2. Selection: By January 31, 2022, 1,007 families will be randomly selected and ALL applicants will be informed by email whether they were selected to receive funds or not.  *UPDATE* - E-mail notifications with the results of the draw for the March Break Fund 2022 will be sent out February 7 - 9, 2022.
